LA Chargers — Derwin James, Safety, Florida State
Kudos to the Los Angeles Chargers for not making the same mistake that the 15 teams picking ahead of them in the 2018 NFL Draft did, by over-analyzing bogus information and passing on safety Derwin James, who was one of the best prospects in the entire draft, at any position. The Chargers already had what looked like one of the best emerging defenses in the NFL, and they added a bona fide stud in James.
James is a physical freak who was considered to be one of the most singularly impactful defenders in college football, and his off-the-chart intangibles made him beloved by his coaches. A lot of teams will be kicking themselves for passing on James in the near future, and rightfully so.
